Great local spot, exceptional service. A bit cramped but that's fine as long as you're expecting it.

Greatly enjoyed our meal at Bottega on Saturday night. Service and food excellent. Our waiter Juan was engaging and accomodated any requests we made. Worth coming out in the pouring rain!

Absolutely the worst meal I have ever had at a restaurant I booked on Open Table. The service was deplorable, the food came late, cold, and in waves rather than at the same time as it should be when entertaining guests. Nobody asked us once if we enjoyed our appetizer or meal, we had to literally get up to serve one of guests their white wine and we had to pour our own red wine from the table. I had to get up an find our server to pay the bill. Bottega was bad!

The meal was wonderful. We chose it for the proximity to the hotel and were not disappointed. The waiter was a gem which added to the experience. I would recommend that if you order the special that you ask the price of the dish as it was pretty pricey. Would definitely return to this restaurant

It’s a pretty spot. Very good food. Tables nicely spaced so that you can hear a conversation at your own table. We have been there many times. This past Sat. Eve wait service could have been more attentive

With the exception of one of the 2 co-managers, this restaurant is by far one of the best I’ve tried in NYC. Service was 8/10, food was 10/10. This was a birthday occasion, and they could’ve cared less. Nothing special at or the end of dinner like most restaurants in NYC. Which brings me to what really rubbed me wrong, the one co-Manager who was rude and condescending; also, we were never read the specials. The waiter was somewhat rude at first but warmed up. The food is superb, the wine list extensive and reasonable. I’d go again but would definitely avoid the one maitre’d . And if you’re going to CE,berate a special occasion, make sure someone who cares knows.
